You can try and submit the URL when you bring the site up, you'll get it crawled instantly: http://blog.archive.org/2013/10/25/fixing-broken-links/
But probably the best approach is to crawl the website yourself and upload the archive here as an item: http://archiveteam.org/index.php?title=Wget_with_WARC_output

Nemo_bis,
Is it possible to pass on a self-created archive (wget with warc) to the Wayback Machine? Once created, you could upload the archive to IA, and anyone interested can download it. But would it show up in the Wayback Machine? Its utility would be limited if it doesn’t.

Yes, your WARC will eventually enter the Wayback machine, though I don't know the details of the process. See https://archive.org/post/421779/submit-warc
